Virtual Tour Stop, Marye's Heights
The Confederate line at Fredericksburg stretched for seven miles on a series of hills and ridges with the left flank secure on the Rappahannock River above Fredericksburg and the right flank anchored on Massaponax Creek. The most famous part of this high ground were two hills, Willis Hill and Marye's Hill, that the soldiers referred to as Marye's Heights.
